Full Description

Large 4to. 32pp, 30 litho plates (plate 25 bound as frontispiece ; plates 1/2 and 4/5 are double-page plates carrying two numbers each ; some of the plates partly hand-coloured). Publisher’s gilt and blind-stamped cloth, worn and chipped at outer corners, spine repaired with adhesive tape. Plates browned and soiled at outer margins, small stains on margins of plates 25 and 30. Bookp[lates of F.Patterson Smith and Jill Allibone (who acquired this copy in Boston, Massachusetts, in 1979).

Measured drawings of surviving mediaeval pulpits in English parish churches, predominantly in Gloucestershire, Somerset and the West Midlands, done by Francis Taylor Dollman (1812-1900), a London architect specialising in Gothic Revival churches. This particular copy is not pleasing, but Dollman’s drawings are helpful for those interested in the subject matter.
